Hi everyone,

I'm a noob and require 64 Bit installation version of DiffMerge for Ubuntu. Is there a package out there, and can someone point me in the right direction.

Hello,

The Ubuntu package works on both 32 and 64 bit systems.
All you need to do is add the --force architecture
argument to the command line when you install it.

There are full installation instructions on page 13 of the PDF
manual to install it on either type of system. Here is the
interesting part of that page:

After downloading the most recent DEB file, you can
install DiffMerge on i386 systems using the following command:

sudo dpkg -i diffmerge_3.3.0.1000-1ubuntu610_i386.deb

On x86_64 systems, use the following command:

sudo dpkg -i diffmerge_3.3.0.1000-1ubuntu610_i386.deb --force architecture

This completely installs DiffMerge; this includes an executable
in /usr/bin/diffmerge, a man page, and a menu item in the
Ubuntu Application | Programming menu.


Let us know if you have any questions or problems getting it to work.

I'd like this too as I quite like this tool over some of the other options out there. I tried installing the debian i386 package with the --force architecture option today but I get a "/usr/bin/diffmerge: No such file or directory" even though the file is quite obviously there (using either the command line or the menu item install). I hope this gets fixed (I'm running ubuntu-9.10-amd64)

I'll have to build a machine to test that config. I have an 8.04 system,
but haven't gotten around to making a 9.10 one yet. There's probably
a library or other dependency change that I need to fix. (At least
until I can get time to make a real 64 bit build.)

Let me do some digging on this and get back to you.

We've confirmed that there is a problem running on 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10
(even with the --force architecture option) but don't have a solution yet.

I've logged the problem and will provide more details later.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
jeff

Thank you for looking into it. Here's hoping to get it soon, because it really is one of the better tools out there.

Thanks!

I've managed to install DiffMerge 3.3.0 on Ubuntu 10.04 x64 by running:
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --force architecture -i diffmerge_3.3.0.1001-1ubuntu610_i386.deb

Its also working quite nicely as an extension to RapidSVN!
